Nestled high in the hills west of Oliver, High Chaparral Guest House offers serenity and privacy amid the indigenous flora and fauna of the Northernmost high desert in North America.  While only 10 minutes from world-class restaurants and over 30 award winning wineries, you experience commanding views of the valley as you enjoy the peaceful quietude of the guest house.  After a day of wine touring, enjoy a glass of wine on your wrap around deck as you prepare your own dinner on the stainless propane BBQ and take in an amazing sunset.  Our mountain retreat offers excellent night sky viewing with plenty of opportunity for wildlife and bird sightings.  Enjoy the cooling breezes while listening to Nighthawks  “booming” as they dive for insects.

High Chaparral is unique and unlike anything else offered in the area.  The scent of ponderosa pine and wild sage enchant the senses while the breeze whispers through the trees.  The property is home to many species of birds, including quail, grouse, sage thrashers, bluebirds, hummingbirds, eagles, owls, hawks, and vultures.  In the Spring many beautiful wildflowers cover the surrounding hills.  Ancient deer paths are present throughout the acreage, still used today by our resident deer and are an easy hike for our guests.  Oliver is home to excellent restaurants and over 40 award winning wineries.

Relax and enjoy while taking in all that our 80 acre property has to offer – privacy is yours in a gorgeous setting.  We are stewards of our land and have signed a covenant with Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society to maintain the natural wildlife habitat.

Your Hosts: Linda and Bruce

After enjoying many trips to the Okanagan over the years we purchased our dream property and moved to Oliver in late 2007. Linda enjoys running High Chaparral Guest House after 27 years in the film industry. Bruce continues to commute working on various film projects. We live in a separate residence on the acreage with our dog, Oliver.

We  spent 4 days here – so incredibly beautiful: starry sky at night, owls hooting, away from all the tourists (yet so close to several wineries). The accommodation was clean and  well-appointed; the patio a fabulous gathering place to hang out and visit.  Linda and Bruce were incredibly attentive without being intrusive. We definitely will be back!

This was a fabulous place to stay. Linda and Bruce, hosts, have put so much effort into ensuring that their guests have every comfort. The sunsets from the deck are spectacular. The place is quiet and serene yet just a ten minute car ride to the best wineries and eateries in the Okanagan.  Plenty of  opportunity  for good biking and hiking. Highly recommend.

We loved our time at the guest house.  The remote location lends itself to peaceful relaxation. It was wonderful to sit on the patio (with a meal or drink prepared in the lovely well equipped kitchen) and relax and enjoy nature – the only sounds being the crickets and the birds. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well designed to fit in with the natural surroundings.  Would love to go back again.

Beautiful tranquil location near Oliver, would highly recommend it for adults and well behaved pets.

Close to miles of trails and roads for runners, bikers.

5 minutes from the nicest golf course in the region.
